I think we can have several types of trees (the one with entire XML tags, the one 
I coded with icons, etc.) like Conglomerate does (and syntaxic coloration in
tags, and other beautiful things, who just need to be coded :-)

What's your opinion ? (and we also need yours, users reading this message on the
mailing list !)

The editor can be reorganized a little bit, I think the two text boxes and the
buttons aren't needed. The treeview is imho all we need ton make an editor (and
maybe a right-click popup menu ?).

I agree, we need artwork. We also need users and particularly people who have
precise opinions about what is a good GUI :-)

Quite nothing, some lines of code :-)
